relations. excuse me. dick nixon, a determined anticommunist in the 1940s and '50s, had been working on thawing the world war between the people's republic of china and the u.s. for years. once he became president, he and his national security adviser, henry kissinger, explored different avenues of communication with china. by mid 1971 their efforts had paid off, and china extended an invitation to the president to visit peking. not only would nixon be the first u.s. president to visit the people's republic of china, but because of china's self-imposed isolation, one of a limited group of westerners who had ever be been there. as a result, there was tremendous worldwide interest in the trip. when china decided to allow the american press to tag along with the president and mrs. nixon, people around the world followed the february 1972 journey with tremendous interest. dick had to remain sequestered with the chinese leaders much of the time. pat was the representative who introduced americans to china, represented the american people to the chinese. if she had not already realized wha
and there's pat nixon, pat nixon is a prop to dick nixon, quite literally during the speech. she is sitting there nervously, not knowing what he is going to say. she is crucial into the strategy of making her husband look normal. he talks about her being a normal suburban house wife but there's a fascinating think about pat nixon, and she is weirdly open about the fact that she doesn't really seem to like politics, and seems to even have some kind of trepidation about being with her husband. she writes a puff piece for her husband titled "a wonderful guy" and she says, dick doesn't do anything in a half hearted manner so i know we're in for a rugged time. this isn't a piece that is supposedly a celebration of his -- and she is worried about him, about what her life is going to be, and things like that. you get a real sense that with both eisenhower and pat nixon that politics transformed people in sometimes ways they don't necessarily want. another character is joe steph mccarthy, running in 1952 for re-election. his tough man veneer, the sort of macho character he representses nixon in som

are still trying to figure out dick nixon. well, for example, i looked and said, nixon, in his free time, likes to boulogne and sometimes wore a black suit to do it. that begins to explain things. he does this. so i guess all books in the being trilogies. so affairs of state, i try to take a different perspective on our presidents. for example, we all know about george washington. we studied washington. what brilliance. we studied his courage, dashing crossing of the delaware on christmas night which saved the revolution, but who would toward -- who were george rushed to the store fronts when he was a kid? and you find that the teenage washington, more than one occasion, basically goes back home in tears because he was turned down and puts pen to paper and writes roses are red, violets are blue to the palms. he once wrote that cupid start has been shot through my heart when it yet another girl turned and down. this is a different look to washington. you know, during my degrees and doctoral studies, professors did not tell me about washington's teenage friend. so it is kind of fun. i thin
presidential character. we're also trying to figure out dick nixon. for example, nixon in the springtime like to boulogne and sometimes wore a black suit to do it. that begins to explain things. he does this? so i guess all books and of being trilogy's. here is the end. so the affairs of state, i try to take a different perspective on our presence. for example, we all know about george washington. who were george washington's conference? that teenage washington on more than one occasion basically goes back home because she was turned down. puts pen to paper. roses are red, violets are blue. this is a different look to washington. during my degrees and doctoral studies by professors did not tell me about washington's teenage your friend. so it's kind of fun, and that think it provides us with an important lands to my new way of understanding. we all know that our country's leaders have oftentimes been shaped by the hand of a woman, often a mother and often a wife. i'm here to tell you, sometimes of a mistress as well. it's in the news today as we take this program. dominating the headlines wit
